Sexual health
Division: Medical and SurgicalWest Coast DHB

The West Coast Sexual Health Service provides FREE, CONFIDENTIAL sexual health advice, assessment, diagnosis and treatment.

Sexually Transmitted Infections come in a variety of different forms with a wide range of symptoms (or none at all)! These can be confusing and scary; the Sexual Health Clinics help people of all ages to ensure both they and their partners are safer sexually.

We deal with conditions related to sexual health, apart from condoms & the Emergency Contraception Pill – Contraception provision is not available through this service. Please see your Primary Practice for this.

Please note: Overseas visitors may have to pay for consultation and lab costs.
